JNoSQL: The Definitive Solution for Java and NoSQL Database
JNoSQL is a framework and collection of tools that make integration between Java applications and NoSQL quick and easy — for developers as well as vendors. The API is easy to implement, so NoSQL vendors can quickly implement, test, and become compliant by themselves. And with its low learning curve and just a minimal set of artifacts, Java developers can start coding by worrying not about the complexity of specific NoSQL databases but only their core aspects (such as graph or document properties). Built with functional programming in mind, it leverages all the features of Java 8. This session covers how the API is structured, how it relates to the multiple NoSQL database types, and how you can get started and involved in this open source technology

Testing Java Microservices
With traditional software unit tests, there’s never a guarantee that an application will actually function correctly in the production environment. And when you add microservices, remote resources that are accessible over a network, into the mix, testing is more tricky. To make things even harder, microservices typically need to collaborate with additional network-based microservices, making testing even more challenging. Moving to microservices implies a change in the mindset of developers, so will using old testing techniques with new architectures still work?
In this session, you’ll learn test strategies that solve the most common issues likely to be encountered when writing tests for a microservices architecture. We will look at how tools such as Arquillian, JUnit, Docker and techniques such as service virtualization, consumer-driven testing and testing in production with Istio can aid in accomplishing this task.

Modern Application Automation with Habitat
Habitat is an open source project from Chef Software designed to help you encapsulate exactly what your application needs to run in a single artifact. Build once for Linux, run on any Linux distribution without having to worry about the diverse naming conventions or versions for your dependencies. Build for Windows and deploy as a standalone service. Bring legacy applications forward onto new platforms or into the cloud even if you don’t have access to all of the source code. This talk will focus on the key features of Habitat, including demos of how to build and run an application in the Habitat environment.

Helidon : Java Libraries for Writing Microservices
Come learn about developing microservices using Helidon. Helidon is an open source project led by Oracle. Helidon contains a collection of Java libraries for building microservices. In this session we will talk about two programming models supported by Helidon: lightweight, functional model using JDK as runtime for those wanting less “magic” and Microprofile for those wanting inversion of control and familiar Java EE APIs. We will show how to quickly create your first Helidon application which uses both programming models.

Don’t be a Trojan
Data is the new gold. Security problems and data leaks are getting more and more attention in the media. Privacy and integrity of your clients (personal) data is more than a hot topic. Are you as a developer prepared?! On the other hand, you could be part of the problem as well. So, how secure are you and how secure is your work.
Common mistakes made in Functional Java
In Java 8 functional style programming was introduced in Java. Java 9 extended this with some nice new features. For many people it is hard to grasp the idea of functional style programming after so many years of purely working in the imperative OOP style. The opportunities Java gives us out of the box are massive, but with great power comes great responsibility.
Brian points out common mistakes that are made when integrating functional style programming in your every day Java project and how to prevent this. This way you can write better, cleaner and more readable code. But even more important, you will be able to utilize the functional code constructions in Java 9 to it’s full potential… and maybe, you even start to like it.

Come To The Dark Side – We Have AsciiDoc
Sometimes you have to join the Dark Side – temporally. Writing documentation and preparing presentations as software developer is bad enough but using Microsoft Office makes it unbearable. Be real – BLOBs shared over email, file system and/or Slack is a thing of the past. We want our stuff text-based and version controlled but sometimes Markdown does not cut it. But help is near – learn how to get an efficient work-flow using Sublime & Maven to generate beautiful PDFs and reveal.js presentations.
Kickstart Your Gatling Performance Testing
You think of using Gatling to run performance test? But got confused with Scala, DSL and documentation? This presentation shows how to write Gatling tests in your IDE, execute them on the command line and push them into your CI server of choice. Afterwards we discuss a few of Gatling’s feature such as injection profiles, scenario implementation, test configuration and last but not least debugging your Gatling scripts.

In this talk, we briefly mention some of the past techniques for gaining persistence, followed by an analysis of non-mainstream methods and focusing on leveraging Active Directory features to achieve persistence.
Identity theft: Developers are key
Identity theft is perhaps the most concerning kind of Cybercrime nowadays. It is not only about how secure is your program, but how aware are you? Or better said how naive are we in practice as developers in this big bad world.
Attacking .NET Serialization
In this talk, we will analyze .NET serializers for potential RCE vectors. We will demonstrate that RCE is also possible in .NET and present details about the vulnerable serializers and discuss common configurations that make other libraries vulnerable.
Automating Incident Response for AWS Compromises
Incident Response procedures differ in the cloud versus when performed in traditional, on-premise, environments. The cloud offers the ability to respond programmatically but what about a pwnd API key?
This talk will cover the inner workings of Ethereum and compare it with its more famous crypto cousin Bitcoin. How Ethereum works, how is that different than Bitcoin, Solidity, Smart Contracts in Ethereum and Bitcoin Script.
